5 February is a Monday, which suggests "DVD/VOD release date" rather than "in cinemas now!"

Aha. Yes. I googled “cinema releases” but, looking again, that list doesn’t actually specify “cinema” anywhere on the page so I imagine you’re quite correct…

Watched it yesterday while recuperating... there's some decent stuff in there that comes straight from the comic, and some less decent stuff, especially as it trails off to a muddled end.... recasting Fallon as misogynistic Brexiteer works as an update on misogynistic yuppie I suppose, but you can't help but feel we are supposed to admire the "Triumph" of his will over the EU overlords... It has made me want to read the original run, if only in tribute to Martin Emond, who shamefully gets no credit as far as I can tell, despite those best bits being literal translations of his panels.

For what it's worth, Adkins did make a point of name-checking Mills, Emond and Mighten during his slot on a recent(ish) Empire podcast. He comes across as a decent chap, who has realised a dream few of us will - to turn his favourite British comics series into a feature length film!
